Encore Presentation of the Eighth Live Inklingo Video

Replay of Live Inklingo Video 08

HOW TO USE FREEZER PAPER TEMPLATES
The eighth LIVE Inklingo video is intended to help all quilters—whether or not they use Inklingo to print on fabric.

Please scroll down to the last image (with the play button) to watch the replay. 

This video is full of great tips for using freezer paper.

You might wonder why I teach a method that doesn’t used Inklingo but it makes total sense because Inklingo is all about making quilting more accessible.

Sometimes you cannot print on fabric. On the other hand . . . . .

Anything you can draw or print in freezer paper, you can cut apart and sew together again. 

Dear Jane quilt by Linda Franz 1999

I made My Dear Jane™ quilt by hand with freezer paper templates. This quilt won a first place ribbon at the AQS Show in Paducah in 1999.

The New Hexagon - Katja Marek

In the video, I used The New Hexagon Book by Katja Marek as an example because I frequently hear from quilters who are not getting the results they want with English Paper Piecing and they want to know what Inklingo shape collections they need to make the designs. (Index of Shapes)

Dancing with the Stars Quilt, Millefiori Quilts 2

There is also a demonstration showing how to make Dancing with the Stars in Millefiori Quilts 2 by Willyne Hammerstein with Inklingo by adapting a printed shape because one of the shapes is not inklingo-able yet.

I also explained how to use freezer paper templates to make any of the quilts in The Patchworks of Lucy Boston by Diana Boston or Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC), and even clothing!

How to use freezer paper templates

HIGHLIGHTS OF DEMONSTRATIONS

  • tips for tracing a design from a book
  • using spacer strips to position the templates on fabric (above)
  • rotary cutting with a ruler marked with the seam allowance
  • adjusting for wider or narrower seam allowances
  • markers to use on dark fabric
  • using freezer paper templates even when you don’t need to mark the sewing lines
  • using freezer paper templates whether you sew by hand OR by machine
  • how to keep the fabric shapes organized while you sew
  • fussy cutting a border print
  • making thicker freezer paper templates
  • using temporary Glue Dots to salvage expensive paper pieces, or when it is not practical to use a hot dry iron to iron FP templates to fabric
  • how to adapt a printed shape when the actual shape is not available

Acrylic or freezer paper?

WHY FREEZER PAPER TEMPLATES ARE BETTER THAN ACRYLIC
The demonstrations show how it is easier to rotary cut and mark sewing lines with freezer paper—not acrylic.

Acrylic templates don’t do what freezer paper templates can do, so they are not the best option.

IMPORTANT LINKS

All of the information in this video is also covered in the Quilted Diamonds 2 DVD lesson. I did not do any sewing in Live Video 08 but the QD2 DVD lesson includes everything about using freezer paper templates AND all of my best tips for hand piecing.

Encore Presentation of the Sixth LIVE Inklingo Video


I have edited the video to eliminate the first 15 minutes and uploaded it to Facebook—for a fresh start..W

There was an audio problem for the first 15 minutes in the LIVE video on Friday. This edited version skips that part.
.

Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC)
The video is about Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses.

The demonstrations include:

  • Diana Boston’s book, The Patchworks of Lucy Boston (limited quantities available in the Shop)
  • a tour of Lucy Boston’s POTC quilt, close up
  • demo showing how to get a fast start by chain piecing hexagons from crosshair to crosshair by machine
  • demo of hand piecing, including sewing kit and how to move from one seam to the next continuously
    .
    Patchwork of the Crosses variation
    .
  • demo preparing the fabric sheets for printing
  • demo printing custom size
  • demo rotary cutting several layers at a time
  • demo English Paper Piecing Rescue, if you started with EPP but want to finish faster
  • demo using scraps of freezer paper and scraps of fabric
  • POTC quilts by Mary in Wisconsin, Kathy in Mexico, Fern in Singapore and Carol in Panama
  • my simplified variation of Patchwork of the Crosses
  • mini tour of the shape collection
  • mini tour of the website including the Main Lucy Boston Page (Shop)
  • mini tour of the blog, including the FREE EQ project files

<whew> We covered a lot!
.
.Mary Quilt Show Poster

I showed Mary’s POTC quilt and gave info about the Quilt Show in Whitewater Wisconsin. but that was lost when I cut the no-audio section.

If you can get to Whitewater by February 25, you can see about 20 of Mary’s amazing quilts, and if you are lucky, you will meet Mary too.

Many of the quilts on display were made with Inklingo. Mary has been using Inklingo since 2006.
.

The Dreaded Blue Screen
The Dreaded Blue Screen gives me the shivers!

During my rehearsals with the new equipment, I got the blue screen MANY times. Through trial and error, I learned that I had to attach the cameras and open each piece of software in a particular sequence to avoid crashing the computer.

Unwittingly, I did my sound test as soon as the mike was plugged in but I added more equipment afterwards and that seems to have muted the audio. If it’s not one thing, it’s another.
.

Live Inklingo Video 06

I can avoid that mistake next time . . . but Monkey says, I’m sure to think of a new boo-boo.

SUBSCRIBERS ARE NOT GETTING EMAILS
Please tell your friends about the video because they probably did not get an email.

When I posted on Friday to announce the LIVE video, the email notification was only sent to about 10% of the quilters who subscribe to the blog. The website programmer has been working on the problem this weekend. It looks as if there is an expensive solution. <sigh>

 

Inklingo Live Video 06

I learned a lot doing this latest LIVE video. The new equipment is definitely better and the software is easier for a non-geek to manage. I am looking forward to doing more of these LIVE videos. If you want to know when, it is a good idea to check the Inklingo Facebook Page frequently.

Please remember that you cannot count on Facebook to show you anything from Inklingo anymore, even when you have liked the page. They made big changes in January to try to make me to pay to add my posts to your feed. Since these are FREE videos, I would rather not have to pay.
.

Introduction to Inklingo

I hope you will share info about Inklingo with your friends. If you do, this short video is a good intro.

I still have to add Live 06 to the  summary of the other LIVE videos on the website. (Click on the Video tab.)

Thank you to everyone who has been watching live while I learn how to do all of this. See you later?

Encore Presentation of the Fourth LIVE Inklingo Video


ENCORE PRESENTATION
Thank you to everyone who watched Friday Night LIVE. I could not do it without you—or if I did, it wouldn’t be any fun.
.

Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses

I postponed my original plan for the video because another reprint of Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC for short) was delivered this week. It is very exciting and gratifying for me that Lucy Boston’s legacy is getting stronger and stronger as the years go by!

I also needed a simple plan this time because the week was so hectic— including the delivery of 100 pizza boxes and unexpectedly living without running water for 24 hours.

I will save my original plan for another live video.

Another printing of Patchwork of the Crosses

I carried the boxes of POTC books into the house in stages. It will take a while to get the rest of them into the basement. So far, these have only made it as far as the landing.

I only carry one box at a time because they are 24 pounds each. I must be doing something wrong because I managed to break almost all of my fingernails. I’ll wear my garden gloves in the future.

I wanted to keep this live video SIMPLE because I am still working on getting a better camera setup too.

SIMPLICITY
The theme is simplicity. I talked about some of the things that inspire me and compared the simple tools of Lucy Boston with the simple tools we use today.
.

The Patchworks of Lucy Boston by Diana Boston

I first learned about Lucy Boston from Diana Boston’s gorgeous book. It is one of my all-time favorite quilt books even though it does not include patterns.

As soon as I saw it, I knew that Inklingo could make Lucy Boston’s innovative, complex works of art accessible to more quilters—and Inklingo IS all about making quilting more accessible.

When I contacted Diana Boston about doing my book, she was wonderful. Her book was out of print by that time but she brought it back with a new cover when I published mine.

None of this would be possible without Diana Boston.

The Manor at Hemingford Grey

Diana Boston’s book about Lucy Boston includes wonderful stories about the inspiration for her patchworks, her fabric purchases in wartime England, references to the patchworks in her letters, historical background, and her life story.

Diana Boston’s descriptions of the patchworks are insightful and poetic, and Julia Hedgecoe’s photographs are inspirational.

By the way, I should have said “fabric department” instead of “quilt shop” when I was talking about the limited fabric options available to Lucy Boston after World War II. Quilt shops came later.

LIVE —NEW MISTAKES NEXT TIME 
As a “non-techie” person, managing all of the new software and equipment for the live videos has been a challenge.

My main “focus” now is getting a better camera setup, so I can use my good digital cameras as webcams. When that is sorted out, I will be able to sew LIVE by hand and by machine and show it to you close up!
.

GLOSSOPHOBIA
A fear of public speaking is one of the most common phobias. I think everyone has it at least a little bit.

Doing these live videos takes public speaking to a whole new level because of the technical side (not my forte), because I cannot see you, and because it is saved online for anyone to see. It is hard for me to watch when it is over.

When I was traveling to speak at quilt guilds, I knew the audience was friendly and I could get a live response. With these videos, I have no idea who might be watching, so your LIVE comments make a huge difference. Thank you!

.

Introduction to Inklingo

Here’s another video that is NOT live and I am not on camera at all. It only takes 8 minutes and tells you how to start printing great shapes on fabric FREE.

I hope you will come back for the next LIVE videos and bring your friends.

If you watch the replay (at the top), please watch with a kind eye and let me know what you would like to see next time, okay? You can leave a comment below or email me at linda@lindafranz.com.

Thank you for watching!

Encore Presentation of the Third LIVE Inklingo Video

Happy New Year!

2017 has been a great year for Inklingo and I hope 2018 will be even better. More videos. (And more video bloopers.) More shape collections. More sewing time. More QUILTS.

And last but not least, more time with friends.

 


ENCORE PRESENTATION
Thank you to everyone who watched Friday Night LIVE. This would not be any fun without you.

I talked about

  • the NEW Silent Garden shape collections from Millefiori Quilts 3
  • printing on dark fabric
  • a cool tip with freezer paper templates
  • continuous stitching by hand
  • circling the intersection by hand
  • sewing crosshair to crosshair by machine
  • hybrid piecing (combining hand and machine piecing)
  • fabric requirements for different layouts, different straight grain, stripes
  • two tips for fussy cutting

That’s all I could cram into one hour. Pretty good, eh? (Live from Canada)

Inklingo Live Video 03
As usual, I was disappointed with parts of it.

This is a rare shot where I was actually looking at the right camera. I was so concerned about making sure I was showing the intended scene/camera—correcting a previous mistake—that I was often looking at a monitor off to my right. It looks odd. Disappointing.

So, next time, I will try to look at the correct camera more often—while still keeping an eye on what scene is playing and NOT glancing at the live feed on Facebook, which is delayed.

All very confusing—but that’s LIVE for you.

 


Another blooper.

Unfortunately, this clip showing printing on dark fabric was cropped very tightly in Friday’s live video—my mistake.

I was able to create this new clip (above) with the un-cropped original video and coordinate it with the audio from the LIVE video. (It’s a miracle. I amazed myself.) I’m still learning. I think I can avoid this mistake next time.
 .
There is more about printing on fabric on the Main Beginner’s Page and more about printing on DARK fabric in the Top Ten Tutes.

 

hand piecing with a running stitch

The close-up camera focus was disappointing AGAIN. I’ll try something else next time.

I am also getting advice to fix the audio echo. <sigh>

I’ll keep making mistakes but I’ll try to make new ones every time, okay?

Live = You never know what will happen but I still felt sad when I watched the replay this time.

If you had trouble seeing the stitching, there is an olde Inklingo video on YouTube which shows Circling the Intersection.

 

Silent Garden quilt stars

Yesterday, I tried to get over my disappointment by sewing 6 more stars.

I’m limited by the amount of fabric to only 57 stars. I wish I had more. I have 19 of 57 finished, so I’m a third of the way there. It is going to be gorgeous, don’t you think? Thank you, Willyne Hammerstein!

I combined hand and machine piecing (hybrid piecing) yesterday. Each star block goes very fast, especially  when I’m not on camera, trying to talk and manage cameras at the same time.

AS PROMISED—LINKS MENTIONED IN THE LIVE VIDEO
Driveway Barb’s Blog – Barb Clark teaches Inklingo in the Fort Worth area of Texas. She has been using Inklingo for years and shows her amazing fussy cutting (above) on the blog. You can ask her why I call her Driveway Barb.

Cathi’s Quilt Obsession Blog – This is one of the blogs I have followed for years. Great inspiration! Cathi has made many quilts with Inklingo since 2006. Her latest article shows Silent Garden stars from the front AND from the back. There is always a fabulous cartoon by Mr Q O.

LIVE —NEW MISTAKES NEXT TIME 
I can confidently say that we will have brand new mistakes in Live 04.  <sigh> I am learning as we go along. It’s not boring.  You never know what will happen. I’m trying to see it as a learning experience.

Thank you for visiting here and thank you for watching LIVE, despite my shortcomings.

If you missed it, I hope you will watch the replay (at top) with a kind eye. Don’t forget to order the shapes while they are only $20 too!

.

Introduction to Inklingo

This video only takes 8 minutes and tells you how to start FREE.

If have a New Year’s Resolution to learn something new, let me suggest learning how to print on fabric. I guarantee it is easier than learning how to do live video!

I hope you will be back for more LIVE videos and bring your friends in 2018.

Thank you for a great 2017. Happy New Year!

Encore Presentation of the First LIVE Inklingo Video

Live Video - Print on fabric

Thank you to everyone who watched the first Inklingo LIVE video!

Other than the sound breaking up at times (for some), it went more smoothly than I expected and I think you could sense my excitement!

I did not expect it but Facebook made the video available for replay soon after we finished it. Very cool. (We’re learning as we go along.) If you tuned in late or had to leave early, you can still see it all, here or on the Inklingo Facebook Page..

The sound will be muted until to click the little speaker icon in the bottom right corner.

UPDATE MARCH 2018
For a few minutes near the end, I was talking about one thing and showing another, but I figured out how to edit it, so it is easier to understand how to navigate in the PDFs. It is also a few minutes shorter and available on YouTube.

Please share the video with your friends.

Special thanks to Raylene, for emailing me a photo of her Passacaglia quilt top (above). It caused a sensation! Of course, in my excitement, I mispronounced Passacaglia AGAIN but I think you know what I meant. It is the brilliant design by Willyne Hammerstein in the first Millefiori Quilts book.

 

Inklingo demonstration LIVE

I was amazed that all of the equipment worked (except the printing delay) and absolutely thrilled that so many of you tuned in on such short notice. It has been viewed more than 7,300 times already.

 

Inklingo quilters around the world

WHERE ARE INKLINGO QUILTERS?

EVERYWHERE!

Your comments made it fun for me. When I skimmed through them, I found notes from quilters in New Zealand (missing above?), France, Belgium, England, Scotland, Portugal, South Africa, Argentina, Australia (including a few from Tasmania), Brazil, Spain, Denmark, . . . and Canada and the US, of course.

Isn’t it fabulous that we can be connected this way!!

I cannot tell where everyone was but quilters left comments in at least 33 different US states. In no particular order, AR, NJ, KY, IN, HI, OK, IL, WI, ID, KS, CO, FL, NC, MO, WV, AK, MI, IA, GA, TX, NM, MN, ME, PA, OH, CT, CA, AZ, UT, MD, and I probably missed some. Almost ALL Canadian provinces were represented too.

Where were you?

 

2 MINUTE CLIP

I got good feedback on the freezer paper tips near the end and despite an unexpected computer failure this morning, I was able to create a new two-minute clip, so you can get a taste of what it was like live and get two cool tips, if you are too busy printing and sewing to watch the whole thing yet. (If you are as behind as I am, the Christmas lights aren’t up yet.)

By the way, I could have mentioned that if you let the FP cool on the ironing board for a moment, the curl comes out even better.

 

Inklingo Print Dialog Box

I have done some trouble-shooting with my computer guru, Charles, and we think we know why the print dialog box froze for such a long time, and if we are right, it will be fine next time.

PRIZES – TWO $20 GIFT CERTIFICATES

When we realized there were more than 200 comments, Monkey decided we needed two prizes, so we have two prize winners!

  • Barbara Bishop
  • Sharon Kay Payne

Please contact me by email, so I can send you each a $20 Gift Certificate to use for anything at Inklingo.com.

I thought I would be able to number the comments in Facebook and use Random.com to pick a number but it didn’t work. A friend suggested that since the video lasted 60 minutes—exactly, amazing—I could use Random.com to pick a number between 1 and 60 and the winner would be the comment or email that came in at that time. Cool solution. It picked two winners from the Facebook comments. (There were fewer than 400 emails. LOL)

 

As promised, here are links to some of the pages I mentioned in the video:

I meant to show you 1 inch squares in the Index of Shapes and I showed you 1 inch hexagons instead. Can you find the SIX shape collections with 1 inch squares on your own?

 

Linda Franz Live video

I was impressed that Donna and Cynthia noticed the chocolates sitting on top of the printer but I was extremely disappointed that no one pointed out that I wore an outfit that looked like the Canadian flag (white in the center with two red bars), despite mentioning Canada several times. Monkey says, why do I even bother, eh?

Nevertheless, I am very grateful for your enthusiasm and support. Thanks to your suggestions, we have several ideas for future LIVE videos. I am looking forward to doing this again, as soon as we get some extra RAM and new USB controllers for the computer tower.

Thank you for visiting here and thank you for watching LIVE!

I hope it was Time Well Spent, so you will want to come again next time and bring a friend.

Inklingo Ribbon Flower Quilts – Part 7

This is another long article full of info that I think is important.

I use several examples to show how using Inklingo shapes and freezer paper shapes can set you free from acrylic templates!

 

Print quilt shapes on fabric

I often include a “bonus shape” to print on fabric in Inklingo shape collections.

Inklingo Ribbon Flower bonus shape

This is the bonus shape in the new Ribbon Flower shape collection. This simple shape increases the possibilities dramatically!

.

Ribbon Flower with Bonus Shape

For example, adding this shape allows you to create a whole pieced blade.

 

Ribbon Flower variations

You can really jazz up a Ribbon Flower!

These two blocks are identical except that I added 6 of shape E and used different Inklingo edge shapes.

.

Ribbon Flower Variation

Use Bonus Shape E if you want to make this variation of Ribbon Flower.

 

Ribbon Flower quilt

You can make dozens of variations of Ribbon Flower with the shapes in the collection but what if you need something a little different, like this?

Two Inklingo shapes in the same fabric create a new effect. I would prefer to eliminate that seam in the gold fabric and have one piece instead of two.

 

Inklingo with freezer paper templates

I print the Inklingo layout WITHOUT seam allowances on freezer paper to prepare a template. Easy peasy.

Iron the template to the wrong side of the fabric and draw the sewing lines, crosshairs and matching marks manually, Then I can use that fabric shape with the other shapes I have printed.

BONUS TIP  When shapes are not symmetrical, it is important to remember the effect of mirror image. (We’ll save that for another day. This article is long enough already!)

 

Quilted Diamonds 2 book and DVD

Whenever a shape is not available, I use freezer paper templates!

This is the same freezer paper technique I teach in my Quilted Diamonds books.

It is also the method I have explained in detail for traditional Fussy Cutting with Inklingo.

 

Ribbon Flower quilt

For this Ribbon Flower variation, I want two shapes instead of one.

 

Inklingo with freezer paper templates

It’s simple with freezer paper.

 

Ribbon Flower Bow

This is another example showing how you can combine several shapes into one to create a new background shape for a partial ribbon flower.

 

Inklingo with freezer paper templates

This allows you to piece the entire block instead of appliqué (see Part 6) whenever you need a different shape to finish the edges.

There are 4 different edge shapes for many different variations in Ribbon Flower but you can also create your own edge shape with freezer paper!

It is always faster and more precise to print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo but when that is not an option, freezer paper is a wonderful alternative.

When you combine freezer paper templates with Inklingo, anything can happen!

Freezer paper templates give you more flexibility and better results than acrylic every time!

 

There are many more examples of Ribbon Flower variations on the Inklingo Facebook page, so I hope you are following there. If this short slide show doesn’t play for you, click here to see it on Facebook.

Print shapes on fabric for Ribbon Flower quilt

Freezer paper sheets can be used over and over again. The freezer paper sheet for 6 Shape C is used for the blue flowered fabric and the white background fabric.

 

Inklingo Ribbon Flower Variation Rotated

Many of the designs look different when they are turned 90°. This is exactly the same as the first block.

There are more examples on Facebook. If this Facebook slide show doesn’t play for you, try this link.

I hope you are excited to use the worksheets to design your own!

Monkey wants to remind you that the special low intro price for Ribbon Flower lasts only a few days. Visit the Shop.

I can hardly wait to see what YOU do with these shapes!
